The Tennessee Medical Association (TMA) is a professional organization for Doctors of Medicine (M.D.) and Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) in Tennessee. The group predates the national association of which it is a part, the American Medical Association, by well over a decade.


Felix Robertson was a charter member of the TMA and president of the "Medical Society of Tennessee" (original name) in 1834–1840 and 1853–1855.[1]


The TMA organizes an annual conference and publishes a journal, Tennessee Medicine.


In May 2013 Christopher E. Young became the 159th president of the TMA.[2]
